It's time...

It's time to realize the Cubs won't win the World Series this year.  It's time to realize the Cubs won't win the Series next year.  It's time to stop calling for Dusty's head and looking for the big trade.  It's time to realize that the Cubs can't win the World Series--ever--because they're a minor league team.

Of course, they're not really a minor league team.  They play in the National League, the most major of major leagues.  But perhaps it's time that we started treating the Cubs as a minor league team.  With minor league baseball, no one hangs on every pitch, no one rejoices too terribly in a win, no one is too awfully sorrowed by a loss.  People just enjoy baseball in a more pure form.

It's time for us to abandon whatever expectations we have for the Cubs.  Go to the games, watch the games on TV, whatever.  Enjoy the little things that the Cubs--sometimes--do right.  It's time to appreciate the games for their leisurely pace.  It's time to relish the traditions and rituals that draw each of us to the game.  It's time to languish in the ebb and flow of a 162-game season.  In short, it's time to treat the Cubs like a minor league team and just enjoy baseball for the sake of baseball.
